“Stewarding Island Forests through Climate Change,” the 17th annual Bainbridge Environmental Conference, will bring forestry and climate change experts to our community to support resilient island forests, March 15, 2020, at IslandWood.

Stewarding our forests through the challenges of climate change requires a new understanding of forest management, and strategies for planning future forests. How can we protect existing ecosystems? What trees and understory plants will thrive with changing conditions? How can we reduce tree die-offs and decrease the threat of forest fires? The entire community will benefit from this knowledge, as we all live near and between forests, and use these places to add recreation, inspiration, health and aesthetic richness to our lives.

The Bainbridge Environmental Conference is co-sponsored by the Association of Bainbridge Communities, the Bainbridge Island Parks Foundation, Sustainable Bainbridge, IslandWood, the Bainbridge Island Land Trust, the Bainbridge Watershed Council and others.
